Surprises Were Never Shocks at Complex Construction at Mercers Walk
As a family-owned business, Osborne aims to be an environment in which its people and projects both thrive.
Its project successes have helped it become a leading UK contractor.
When it took on the complicated and highly visible project at Mercers Walk, it made sure to put the right manager with the right experience in charge.
He chose Powerproject to manage programme and progress, which helped him to bring it to an early and successful completion, adding measurable value to both the contract and the client in the process.
The £22m development at Mercers Walk, Covent Garden was described as ‘fiendishly difficult’ by the Chartered Institute of Building.
It involved multiple buildings, including the refurbishment of an old warehouse at 13/14 Langley Street into a retail store, three mixeduse blocks that included 24 residential apartments, plus restaurant and retail units at ground and basement levels.
Located in the heart of a busy retail, leisure, tourism and commercial area of London, the needs of a very broad range of stakeholders were considered throughout.
“ I couldn’t have managed this project without Powerproject because I feel so comfortable and relaxed using it. ”
